Just a word to tell you about what’s coming up and to show you one of the most extraordinary pattern piece I’ve ever sewn. I will gladly take tips on how to sew stretch material with a regular machine here.

I’ve also set up a Facebook CarmencitaB page where I link to all the really cool and beautiful sewing and fiber art I come across if you fancy this sort of stuff.

  1. Wow- I remember this pattern from the 1970s. My older sister (who looked very much like the model at age 18) wanted this dress but my mother said no-way. It was too revealing.

    I can't wait to see your results!

  2. I still have my copy of the pattern! When it was new, I made this up in a beautiful red Qiana jersey. (Unfortunately, Dupont discontinued the manufacture of Qiana – something which is EXTREMELY frustrating to those of us who have a passion for 1970s patterns. Grrrrr.)

  3. is there anyway I can get a copy of this pattern? I can't find it anywhere and I'd do almost anything….
